Teaser Tuesdays #97 – June 7th: A Study In Charlotte


TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Books And A Beat. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I have been reading this one for a while, but that’s mostly because I don’t have a lot of spare time to read in the first place. A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro is actually a really fast-paced and entertaining Sherlock Holmes retelling I’m looking forward to continue soon! Hopefully I will be able to actually finish it today…


My teaser (47%):

“Oh, she was brilliant. Like a hurtling comet you couldn’t look at dead on without burning your retinas right off. Like a bioluminescent lake. She was a sixteen-year-old detective-savant who could tell your life story from a look, who retrofitted little carved boxes with surprise poison springs early on a Saturday morning when everyone else, including me, was asleep in their beds.”

What are you reading right now?

    • I think there are a few recent Sherlock Holmes retellings around, although I can’t seem to remember the titles right now… This one is definitely good so far though.

    • It definitely shows she is related to Sherlock Holmes; her character description is really well done and it’s a really entertaining read so far.


    • A Study In Charlotte is definitely a really entertaining read and it really shows that the main characters are based on the original Sherlock Holmes and Watson. 🙂
